's time to decide. dan simon looks at the pro and see cons and what it means for merchants. >> reporter: on line versus brick and mortar. the value for your dollars, perhaps, has never been so intense. for years amazon had advantages in key states like california. low sales tax. local book stores already on pressure for the rabid rise of ebooks feel particularly squeezed. michael tucker owns a chain of book stores in san francisco. >> if you can save 10%, why wouldn't you? >> reporter: but amazon's tax advantage recently disappeared in california, adding 7 to nearly 10% to the cost of each order. it also began taxing this year in other states like pennsylvania and texas. on-line retailers collect tax only for states where they have a physical presence. now here in california, amazon is building two giant warehouses, including this one near los angeles. it's a million square feet, and for the old-fashioned retailers, it's another reason to worry. why? because amazon's goal is to get items to customers faster and to be able to offer same-day delivery. that's right. you can avoid stores if
